Left Heated Grip Coming On HOT!
I have a 2001 GL1800 and I noticed the left heated grip coming on yesterday on a 60 degree plus day. At first I thought it was just my imagination but soon the grip got very hot and stayed that way for awhile. It finally went off, I'm assuming it must have an overheat feature that shuts it down.
The right grip didn't come on at all. I recycled the grip heat switch 2-3 times Off and On but it didn't seem to do anything. The grip switch is mounted on the right sub panel but I'm not sure if it is an OEM or an aftermarket grip. I'm the second owner of the bike, 25,000 miles, and I've never noticed this before and the grip(s) have never got that hot.
Any thoughts on what to look for?
